Brown For US Senate - SENATOR SHAHEEN'S SUPPORT FOR TAX ON HEALTH CARE PLANS HURTS FIREFIGHTERS 

MANCHESTER - In advance of Senator Shaheen's event with the Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire in Londonderry this afternoon, the Brown campaign reminded firefighters, police officers and other municipal employees that Senator Shaheen voted for a 40 percent tax hike on their health care plans as part of ObamaCare:
 
“One of the more controversial aspects of the Obamacare law supported by Senator Shaheen is a new tax on high-cost health care plans thatprovide generous benefits. Firefighters and other public employees typically have these kinds of plans, where the employer pays most of the premium and which have low deductibles. These benefits have been negotiated by firefighters and other public employees through the collective bargaining process. This new tax represents a pay cut for firefighters and everyone else with a union-negotiated health care plan, courtesy of Jeanne Shaheen," said Colin Reed, Campaign Manager for Scott Brown.
